on the ballot in the november election. the system is p currently used in louisiana, washington state, and california. it is now a ballot member prop 21. what is your position on the top two primary system and why? >> we'll start with jill stein. >> thank you. and thank you so much to free & equal, and thank you for being here. i think top two does not enlarge our democracy. in many ways, it confuses things more. it puts many candidates onto the ballot all together, and it arbitrarily attaches party labels to them. any candidate can choose any label they want. so it really degrades the meaning of our political parties, where they have meaning, and i know they don't always, but there are some that do have meaning that aren't bought and sold to the highest bidder, and the green party is one of those parties. and i know there are some other parties here as well, the independent parties, where the parties actually represent real values. and the top two obscures the meaning of those parties, and it puts everyone together, so you really can't tell who is representing you, and whoever hats

around washington. on the other hand, the big strength for governor romney is down in coal country, down in southeastern virginia. then governor romney probably has a better chance around norfolk because of those defense issues down there that you just heard john dickerson talk about. so when we get a better feel as to where most of this vote is turning how the, we'll have a better feel as to whose actually ahead. >> pelley: nora, this gives canada them alot of confidence. >> virginia is key. they feel good about virginia because of that heavy turnout. those exit polls we talked about 52% of the electorate is female. it was actually 54% in 2008. these numbers can change a little bit but suggest the female vote is down a little bit. and one of the toughest fights we saw over women voters was actually in virginia. the after that debate where there was that discussion about binders full of women, romney immediately went on the air in virginia with an ad saying that he is for contraception and then obama came back with another ad contradicting that sniesmght thank yo.>> pelley: thank you .

for the president. that said, you think about 18 -- 1980 where every elite in washington and manhattan was sure jimmy carter was going to win. i don't care what they say now. look at frank reynolds saying what the hell is going on on the election night? nobody saw the reagan revolution coming. nobody saw it coming. let me say it again, revisionist, nobody saw it coming. and then i remember walking on set in 2004, and everybody -- not only at this network, at nbc, abc, cbs, in boston, in austin, all talking about president kerry. that was two hours before the polls closed. >> bob shrum. >> everybody knew that john kerry had won the race. everybody. let me repeat. everybody. two hours before. and then we all remembered what happened in new hampshire when everybody was dancing on hillary clinton's grave. >> oh, my god. >> the day of the new hampshire primary. >> let's look at primary crowds. >> mika and i, we're at a nashua gym and saw hillary up there speaking. >> they were, like, bringing people in from out of state. >> everybody came in from massachusetts. and i said, you know, she deserves a b

to washington. and essentially what president obama is saying, look at me. i'm always going to work with the republicans. i worked with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with them on a budget. i tried to work with them on health care. and what they say is, we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now that's the message. you have to decide whether you think that's a good message. i mean, i was watching this -- this storm has been tough on me being out on the road. i was in ohio and wisconsin yesterday. i'll be in florida today, north carolina, and virginia tomorrow. but my neighbors are all without power. my daughter and son-in-law's apartment building was vacated in new york. there are lots of new yorkers who are worried about when if ever they'll get back in their homes and they're supposed to actually vote in a presidential election in just a few days? in some places we can't stand one up in new york, new jersey, and connecticut. so this isn't very -- this is a very difficult time. i'm just sick of all this big money, secret money, constant ne
